River Country Is Being Demolished To Make Way For New DVC Property

Construction River Country

Demolition has begun on what remains of River Country.  Construction crews can now be seen along Bay Lake dismantling what once was the old water park.  The area is currently being prepared for the construction of the new Disney Vacation Club resort called Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge.

Back in November at Destination D, Disney announced that Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge would be a nature-inspired deluxe resort.  It will be located along the tranquil shoreline of Bay Lake, between Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

Terri Schultz, senior vice president, and general manager of Disney Vacation Club said in a statement,

“This resort experience will be a celebration of Walt Disney’s lifelong love and respect for nature, with some fun and even surprising accommodation types that families will find irresistible.”

The resort is expected to offer a mix of over 900 rooms, comprised of standard hotel rooms and Disney Vacation Club villas.  Reflections will be the 16th Disney Vacation Club property at Walt Disney World and is expected to open to the public in 2022.

One thought on “River Country Is Being Demolished To Make Way For New DVC Property

  1. If they wanted to honor Walt’s love of nature . They wouldn’t have torn down all those acres and acres of property to do it. All that wildlife displaced . The deer overrun the campground now even in daylight hours .All for another upscale resort on the lake . We just got back from the Fort and its disheartening to see the Back Yard BBQ gone. CLEMENTINES Beach was taken for Club Member Villas . What a shame . Would Walt want Bay Lake ( Seven Seas Lagoon) riddled with upscale resorts and bungalows over the water ? I’d think not .Not if he was a conservationist .
